    I've stayed here several times. It's very nice and quiet. You can also get a room with a balcony overlooking Franklin St. Nice bar and lounge, and offers a great breakfast. Good location for sightseeing in CH also.

    When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
